HDD Target Read Tests Failed (Error code: WHD20-FG0)

Hi there all,

 

My SL410 encountered the above error during the HW tests. Is there a way to fix the above error?

Hello,

 

Try running CHKDSK in the auto-fix mode and then rerun the tests.

 

Good luck!

I'd make sure you have a backup of all of your data though.

Try CHKDSK first. Also consider investing in SpinRite or HDD Regenerator.

thanks for the advice ColenelONeil,

 

I run the test with HDD Regenerator and detected the 4 bad sector area and relocated the data from that sector. 

Run the Lenovo Hard Drive Quick Tests and it didnt detect any errors..

 

Hope that the bad sectors doesn't increase/spread to other region.

 

THNKs again...

Check again every few days. If it doesn't increase, then it sounds like a minor defect in the surface. If it increases steadily then you have an impending catastrophic failure.

Hi there,

 

So far the solution works but I have to do another scan just to make sure that the bad sector does not spread...
